Generally speaking here's the order:
Incubation vote concludes successfully
1. Migration of 'infrastructure' (source code repo, mailing lists,
perhaps bug trackers)
2. Focus begins on resolving IP issues (this work is done by the
project, and overseen by the mentors) in order to prepare for a
3. First release occurs
..... incubation continues.

The legal affairs committee is generally not going to interact with a
project unless a mentor or the project makes a request that requires
them to. There is a relatively straightforward process for getting
software grants dealt with.

Going back to your earlier question - occasionally a project will make
a release or perhaps even two under the old 'home' - but all of that
energy is divergent from building up your new community and figuring
out your way around the ASF.
